The United Arab Emirates Armed Forces' Surveillance and Reconnaissance Technology is designed and built in support of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces mission to maintain security of the Nation and Peace in the region, according to an official armed forces source. 'Surveillance and reconnaissance systems are the eyes and ears of the political and military structure through which the necessary information is gained to support the decision making process. As an exam pie, satellite imagery in combination with other collection systems (such as U A V, balloon, etc.) allow for persistent monitoring of illegal activities, smuggling, border intrusions, troop movements and military installations,' he said.

He added that: 'The United Arab Emirates Armed Forces Surveillance And Reconnaissance Systems provide critical assistance to the Early Warning, Monitoring and Security missions of our Armed Forces. Further, these technologies also enhance our Forces efficiency in support of critical humanitarian operations such as emergency relief, regional security and peacekeeping operations'.

This technology, he explained, brings into play the latest technology and experience available to turn data into actionable information- leading to achieving information superiority in the 21st century. New technologies have made a dramatic and powerful impact on the means available to support our national security objectives.

The UAE Surveillance And Reconnaissance Systems have the ability to task, collect and produce Geospatial products, which are analysed and the relevant information disseminated to the various Arm ed Forces units.

'This accurate and timely intelligence information provides for a true assessment of a situation, which greatly facilitate maintaining security and peace in the region. 'The UAE Armed Forces has an aggressive technology insertion program.

All programs and activities are built around the concept of flexibility, in order to add new technology as it becomes available, and continually improve on the techniques used today. As an example, the UAE Armed Forces announce the opening of its UAV Research and Technology Centre in Abu Dhabi. Directed and operated by UAE nationals, the centre is the first facility of its kind in the GCC. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
